Tomboy installation.

Post by Tigerman01 »

This may seem like a daft question for all you experts out there but I have just become the owner of a FF Tomboy that I wish to convert to SC. I want to put the rudder servo so that it operates the old fashioned swing system, a la rubber driven escapement but I can't work out how to do it. Any ideas chaps?. :?

Go here :- http://www.singlechannel.co.uk/ then click on "Models" in the menu bar, about 3/4 down the page you will see single ch servo to torque rod instalations

Loads of options. I just bind a tube (earbud stalk) to the servo arm and arrange it pointing down at neutral.
The torque-rod has a small bend vertically down and drops into the tube. Meercats :D

However, for ease & simplicity you could do a string-pull-rubberband-return thing.
